The sister of the San Diego County man shot to death by the FBI in the Idaho woods after allegedly kidnapping a teenage girl has filed a $20-million claim against the FBI.

San Diego lawyer C. Keith Greer, representing Lora DiMaggio, said the FBI killed her brother, James DiMaggio, without provocation.

On Aug. 10, 2013, James DiMaggio fired a shot in the air in hopes that he and 16-year-old Hannah Anderson would be rescued, but was not aiming at the FBI, Greer told the Associated Press on Thursday.
